Wouldn't it be nice if you could somehow wave a magic wand and all the unresolved feelings you have for your ex would be wiped out of your mind? If only it were that easy to get rid of the pain that's left behind after an unwanted breakup. It would be nice to be able to walk away from a relationship without the sting of regret, unfinished business, and sorrow over parting. It would be even better if, while you were at it, you could erase the stinging blow of rejection and the bitter taste of being the last one to know the end was coming.

There are plenty of reasons that relationships don't work out but that doesn't make any of them simple to accept at all. And you know what? They shouldn't be. A relationship that touches you deeply and brings all the rewards and happiness of a healthy relationship (when yours was at its best) shouldn't be too easy to forget and move on once it's ended. There will come a point in time though when you know that it's time to move on. You'll know it intellectually and logically. But that won't make it one single bit easier to do emotionally. Is there anything you can do that will help you get over your ex?

These simple steps will show you how to get over your ex once and for all. At the very least, they will put you on the right path so that you can prepare to move on with a life that doesn't have your ex in it. The first thing you need to do is accept that fact that your other relationship is over. If you're ready to move on then you need to give up on any ideas concerning ways to get your ex back. It's not fair to yourself or the person you decide to move on with if part of you is still holding out hope of getting back with your ex.

The next thing you need to do is take a little time to decide what you want from the next relationship. All relationships are different. You're never going to have exactly what you had before. You're also never going to get exactly what you want from any relationship. But there are things you can decide now that you need in a relationship as well as a few things you'd like to have or really want in a relationship.

Finally you need to be on the lookout for the things, traits, and characteristics that are most important to you in the next person you come across. You don't need to go all long-term and happily ever after with the first person you date but it's a good idea to get as close to the ideal romance you've envisioned as possible if you're really going to move on without your ex.

The only other choice you might want to consider is one that involves getting your ex back. There are many potential benefits and rewards you can experience when you save your relationship after you thought it was over.
